WM3431HW all in one washer/dryer does not power on

Ive had this washer/dryer for about 6 months and last week it just wont turn on anymore. for about a week prior to this the dryer seemed to not work as well and would take twice as long to dry. Now it wont turn on and if you unplug it for about 15 seconds and plug it back in it will chime but no lights come on and it still not working at all.

The filter is blocked. Disconnect your power source. Open the panel. Have a towel or wet vac handy and a screw driver. There is a silver ring circling the drainage hose with a small screw on top. Loosen the screw. Pinch the hose on top and let water drain to wet vac or towel. Completely remove the hose from it's housing. Reach your thumb and index finger inside that same hose and pull out the filter. It looks like a small plastic cup with holes in it. Clean it out, wash it. Use your fingers or dry vac hose and feel the bottom of the inside of the hose where the plastic cup came from. Remove any debri that excaped past the filter with fingers or suction with hose til you can feel with your fingers that the bottom of the inside of the hose is clear. return the cup back inside the hose. Put the silver ring over the lip of the hose then place the hose back on it's metal housing which is attached to the machine. Make sure the hole is secured around the entire metal (if not you will get leakage). Tighten the small screw, pull down at the hose making sure it will not come off with the pressure of the water. Clean up any leakage. Close panel and I promise you, your problem will be solved. Good luck, from Cheryl AlAlexander

Hello friend, we appreciate your post!


It appears you have a laundry center FEX831CS0 and that your dryer is not working. Can you provide me more specific details? Is your dryer not heating, not turning on, or not completing a cycle? For instance did you notice any strange functions or odd noises prior to this issue? With this information I can better address the issue at hand. Thank you - Matt

Tip

Keep your dryer running how it should and save money


service your dryer every 3 months if you use it 3/4 times a week 2 times a week every 6 months it is important easy to do yourself but make sure you turn the power off 1st depending on the make or model you need to get into the inside of your dryer and vac all the lint and dust out all around it builds up on the motor and heater fan if the motor fan gets blocked it will cause the dryer to stop and you will have to wait till it cools down for it will start again not good as the motor will burn out or could catch fire if you follow my advice your machine will last longer and work better

usually, this is a simple "belt" replacement and you can do it yourself if you are somewhat handy. However, make sure that you UNPLUG the unit prior to attempting any repairs. SAFETY FIRST! Good luck.

Where can i find a free service manual for LG WM3431HW?


Unfortunately you won't find one.

LG only supply their servicing manuals to their repair centres and strictly enforce their copyright, so the manuals are not available to the public and when they do occasionally appear the material has been stolen.

Usually I'd recommend a generic repair manual such as the one by Haynes, but LG's direct drive system and a number of other unique technical features mean that the Haynes book isn't as useful as it could be. The WM3431HW is a large capacity and technically advanced washer dryer so it's certainly not as straightforward to service as a traditional front loading washer or dryer. Many LG spare parts can also be difficult to source outside of their own approved servicing organisation.

I respectfully suggest that you either get LG to fix your machine or post a question on this site describing the problem to see if we can assist you.

Dyrer wont turn on at all whirlpool duet front dryer??


Make sure there's power getting to the washer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the washer, if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

If all checks out OK above, replace the control or, timer module.
